Division of Property

In the state of North Carolina, the law requires assets and debts acquired between the date of marriage and date of separation are divided and distributed between spouses regardless of the name the property is held in. This division of property may include:

  • Bank accounts
  • Homes and other real estate
  • 401k
  • Furniture
  • Jewelry
  • Vehicles

North Carolina has a presumption that the marital estate should be split equally with one half going to each party. In many circumstances, however, this may be unfair. The law allows for amendments to the guidelines surrounding division of property. Our family law attorneys will work with you to ensure your best interests are maintained throughout the division of your martial property.
